I am huge fan of jumpsuits. It’s like wearing a dress but with a lot more freedom of movement. Perfect for dancing… yes I’m feeling like I just went through a time tunnel and arrived in studio 54!
I made the Holly while I was in Brazil, top-ing my Brazilian-ness! Some lower decolage was definitely a requirement for the Brazilian scene. So I changed the neckline for the bodice Variation one.
I think by changing the neckline it balance well with the wide legs ( I reduced 2 cm each side from the tester version)
I hemmed for a flat shoe because I am more likely to wear it during the day. I didn’t need to add length so most people will probably will need to shorten it. * updated: I actually cut my pattern hem largest size.
Close the pattern with two red pokadot buttons from my stash.
I made size 10/14. I didn’t made any size alterations. I know the release pattern bottom curve was altered so unless I make that and compare the fit, I cannot comment it. The test pattern worked perfectly for me and that’s probably what I will be re- sewing from. If I’m been very picky, I would lengthen the bodice 1 cm.
I am so in love with these sleeves and rolled cuffs!
Let’s talk about fabric. I been hunting this style (lips) of fabric for 4 months when my gorgeous friend Claire post it on IG. What!!! OMG, please please please I need that fabric.
Claire went shopping for me and GIFTed me 4 metres. She is amazing! I LOVE our community.
I knew Jolies loved this so much I send her some. Because love goes around doesn’t it. I thought I could get more and went back but no lip fabric to be found. SAD…..
I need more of this fabric awesomeness! If you spot it, please let me know!
Did I mention the clever invisible zipper? what zipper? super well hidden!
This pattern is amazing and my new favourite of their collection. I am not saying that because I am a tester. I send them feedback on things I don’t love all the time. They listen and adapt but still maintain their integrity and passion for their design.
oh before I forget, let me show you the back…
cool right? After wearing this twice I may add another button to raise the neckline. Too sext for UK scene!
what do you think?
